[Chimera-users] switching object on/off at the command line

Hi Jean-Francois,
The "objdisplay" command works for non-molecule-type models (VRML,  
volume, and isosurface models).
The "modeldisplay" command works for molecule models and MSMS  
molecular surfaces.  However, if you want to control a MSMS surface  
separately from its corresponding molecule model (atomic  
coordinates), it is necessary to use the Model Panel (because those  
two models will have the same model number and "modeldisplay" uses  
the model number). I hope this helps,
